Lemon Drizzle Cake || My favourite Recipes | Foodie Friday

I originally searched for this recipe after getting Game of Thrones withdrawals in between season. For those of you that don't know, a main character in the book/TV series is Sansa Stark, and she has a soft spot for lemon cakes. So here is my version of it. I have made this recipe many times for my friends and have received great praise.

Vienna: Horse Ballet and the Hapsburgs || Travel Diary

Imperial Hofburg Palace
(Travel Day 22)
The German name for Vienna is "Wien" so "Wienerschnitzel" literally translates to Vienna-Schnitzel.
Wien wein = Vienna wine.

Day 1:

When we arrived in Vienna we had to hurriedly check-in to our hostel before heading out again for the evening local "Walk and Fork" of Vienna. This process proved a little more awkward for us than most, as we were staying at a different hostel than the drop-off point. Chris volunteered to (literally) run up to our hostel and check us in, while I waited with the rest of the group.

On the "Walk and Fork tour" we saw the inner city sights with a local Austrian man called Holst (who has a great accent, but this also meant that he was a little hard to understand.) The architecture around Vienna is gorgeous! Lots of large grand buildings and statues scattered all over the city.
